Team USA wins world ski show tournament
JANESVILLE--It was all an all-American day with blue skies, warm sunshine and a huge win for Team USA at the World Water Ski Show on Sunday.
Team USA swept competition away the tournament at Traxler Park in Janesville with a performance Sunday afternoon that garnered a commanding, 539-point lead over second-place China to earn top honors in the weekend-long competition.
It was a win for Team USA, but in a way, a win for the Janesville Rock Aqua Jays, said team USA member and Rock Aqua Jays show director Dave Rezin. Of Team USA’s 35 members, eight skiers are active Aqua Jays.
He said the team members meshed well to take on competitors from China, Canada, Australia and Belgium.
